Informational Writing

We've begun looking at informational writing more in depth.

Students have completed Investigations all year and have enjoyed that process.  Last week students spent time writing about themselves.  They wrote about what made them special.

This week we talked about biographies.  Working with a buddy, students interviewed each other.  After their rough drafts were complete they filled in their final drafts today.

Here are some kiddos at work.

You can check out my Biography Writing at my TpT Store.

Next up...looking through informational texts for nonfiction features. Students will also be picking an animal to research.  We'll wrap up the year by writing animal reports!
